The World Health Assembly is the supreme decision-making body of the World Health Organization. Held annually in Geneva, Switzerland, the World Health Assembly is attended by delegations from all World Health Organization (WHO) Member States.
The World Health Assembly focuses on a health agenda that covers a wide range of key global health issues from non-communicable diseases, to nutrition, to universal health coverage. It is at the World Health Assembly that global health experts gather to determine the health agenda for the next year. This year, Member States will vote to elect the next head of the World Health Organization. This will be the first new WHO Director-General in 10 years, and also the very first time that all member states in good standing will be able to vote on the candidates.
